Summary
Everything that we do to move, live, work, play, create, and survive, is sustained by spinning a wheel. Whether engines in our cars, or whirling turbines generators in a power plant, spinning the wheels of civilization requires fuel. We've long relied on fossil fuels, but the supply is finite and the environmental costs of burning them are growing. Enter a new generation of inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs who are looking to the edge of discovery for new ways to keep these wheels in motion. There is enough energy trapped inside a single glass of water to power a major metropolitan city for a day, and experimental physicists believe they're close to unlocking it. In the sun drenched deserts of Nevada, clean energy pioneers are building a billion-dollar experimental plant that can generate solar energy even when the sun isn't shining. In a remote region of Canada, technology built in an inventor's garage may even harness the awesome power of artificially created tornados
